Register a WaterSense Certified Smart Controller

Does your lawn irrigation system use a WaterSense Certified Smart Controller?

If so, register your system with the following steps:

  1. Make sure that the product model is on the EPA’s list of approved devices: WaterSense Product Search — Product Category: Irrigation Controllers
  2. Complete the Smart Controller Registration Form (PDF)
  3. Return it in person to the Livingston Township Clerk’s Office, Town Hall, 357 South Livingston Avenue

You will receive a Livingston “WaterSense” Registered Property flag, which must be placed in a visible spot on the property lawn, near the driveway along the curbline.

Livingston’s WaterSense Partnership

The Township of Livingston is proud to have teamed with the U.S Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) WaterSense program to help save water and reduce costs on utility bills. WaterSense aims to decrease indoor and outdoor water use through water-efficient products and water-saving practices.

The program encourages customers to look for WaterSense labeled products, which are independently certified to use 20% less water and perform as well as or better than standard models.

Township Code

Livingston’s Township Code regulates days of the week and times of day that properties may water (quick guide: When Can I Water My Lawn?). This is an important step in improving our water-efficiency awareness. Those with WaterSense Certified Smart Controller systems are exempt from the day-of-week regulations. These specific Smart Controller systems sense the level of moisture in the soil, only allowing the irrigation system to water when actually needed. Decreasing our overall water use means not having have to buy as much water at high rates during peak periods.
